I'm definitely interested... I think an external thermometer/heat option would both be fantastic options.

Noticed in your tests the outside temp is actually quite low. You able to run similar tests with a higher temp...where this product is intended to help? Say..with a temp outside the bag of 80 to 90 degress?

Would be nice to know how effective it is under varying conditions, especially since I'd be using a product like this in my garage and it can get quite warm in there.

Excellent idea and potential for multiple products. Rather than incorporating a thermometer, might be even better to have a "port" or two that is sealed, but could be used for a thermometer, probe or plug to measure temps or run a hear source for the cold areas.

I second the Keg sized bag to be used for mashing. Some people ferment in a Sanke as well and I'll be using a 15 gallon poly barrel for 10 gallon batches, this could definitely be useful.

Good luck with the product!

Thanks for the comments everyone! This is all great feedback!

I am pleased to announce we should have product available at the latest by early May.

We will continue to look into options such as heating coils, appropriate sizes for mashing kegs as well as integrated thermometers. These however will take time and depend on the success of the introductory product.

I will keep everyone posted as we get closer to having a firm availability date as well as when we will start accepting pre-orders!

Cheers!

is this thing rigid? or just like a soft cooler would be?
Have you thought about maybe putting a coil in it like a collapsible laundry basket might have so when its needed it can pop up and maintain shape, and when its not needed it can be pushed flat and stored away?

as an example:


also would it be able to accommodate a blow off tube?

Thanks for the feedback. The cooler bag is somewhat soft similar to a typical flexible cooler. Adding a spring was considered however it would add to the cost and complexity with the insulation in our current configuration and the cooler works great without it. With the zipper top it can accommodate a blow off tube.
